Cliffcrest is a southern Scarborough neighbourhood along Kingston Road that contains a portion of the Scarborough Bluffs, and shares Bluffer’s Park with the bordering Cliffside neighbourhood. And, although you wouldn’t naturally associate breathtaking scenery, lush walkways, sandy beaches, and scenic cliffside lake views, with city-dwelling – you would be hard-pressed to try not to after a visit to Cliffcrest.
Once you’ve parked the car, or hopped-off the streetcar, or hey (for all of you exercise enthusiasts) locked-up your bicycle, in the Cliffcrest community, you’re instantly struck by the beauty and idyllic greenery that is typical of the area. Now, if you’re looking for instant access to the hippest restaurants and most trendy cafes, you may have travelled a little farther east than you needed to (turn-around, abort mission!). But, if you’re here to go on a hike, visit the beach(es), take-in awe-inspiring views, or find a forever home where you can plant some roots down…then you’re in the right place!
Homes in the Cliffcrest area are diverse and offer everything from bungalows to 1 1/2 story homes, new build mansions, and even the occasional floating home perched right on Lake Ontario.
Residents of the Cliffcrest neighbourhood bask in the area’s natural beauty and community-oriented offerings. It is a great neighbourhood for anyone, or any family, who appreciates living close to the water, taking an early evening stroll on the beach, weekend coffee dates, hiking and running trails, and tree-hugged residential streets.
